Jerry Faye Hall is an American model and actress who was born on July 2, 1956. She started modeling in the 1970s and quickly rose to become one of the most in-demand women in the world. She made the shift to acting and starred in the Batman movie in 1989. She has four children with Mick Jagger, the lead singer of The Rolling Stones, with whom Hall had a long-term relationship. Rupert Murdoch, a titan of the media, is her husband.
On March 4, 2016, the pair exchanged vows at St. Bride’s Church of England in Fleet Street. On April 7, 2016, they were pictured together on the final Fox episode of American Idol.
Several media sites reported that they were getting divorced on June 22, 2022.
Two sources with knowledge of the divorce proceedings claim that media mogul Rupert Murdoch and model and actor Jerry Hall are divorcing. Only speaking under anonymity to discuss a private subject, the persons said. Murdoch’s spokeswoman, Bryce Tom, declined to comment. Hall’s representatives could not be reached right away for comment.
The ownership structure of the firms Murdoch owns holdings in, such as the parents of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, is unlikely to change as a result of his fourth divorce. Shares owned by the Murdoch family in the businesses that Murdoch built are held in a closely governed trust. Lachlan, Elisabeth, James, and Prudence are Murdoch’s four eldest children, and together they have voting rights over that trust. Murdoch has set up these voting rights so that he will never lose a vote.
However, the break may have an impact on the entirety of his corporate empire, which continues to wield significant influence both domestically and internationally thanks to its right-leaning news brands like the Fox News Channel in the US, and The Sun in the UK, and Sky News in Australia.
Early on in their marriage, aides and family members claimed that he was gladly spending more time with Hall, freeing up time for his children—most importantly, his eventual successor, Lachlan—to assert themselves at the top of the corporate ladder. The news of Murdoch’s breakup with Hall startled some of his close friends.
At a historic mansion in the heart of London, Murdoch and Hall exchanged vows in March 2016. As a way of celebrating, Murdoch said on Twitter that he would no longer be posting anything. He referred to himself as “the luckiest and happiest guy in the world.”
The couple’s October–December union—Hall is 65 and Murdoch is 91—made them a regular feature of competing newspapers. Photographers would frequently capture the two grinnings widely on a gorgeous beach, in a chilly football stadium, or at a black-tie event.
According to one guest, Hall attended Murdoch’s 90th birthday celebration at the posh Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park, New York, last year. During the festivities, which were attended by notables from the worlds of business, sport, and politics, Hall allegedly doted over Murdoch.
Previously, Murdoch was wed to businesswoman and investor Wendi Deng from 1999 to 2014. In 1999, after more than three decades of marriage, he divorced Anna, a former newspaper reporter. Australian beauty Patricia Booker, who Murdoch divorced in 1965, was his first wife. Mick Jagger, a singer, and Hall were formerly wed, but their union was dissolved in 1999.
